How Counselling & Psychotherapy can Help
Life can sometimes feel challenging and things do not always work out the way we may have planned with everyday stresses and events easily becoming unmanageable. We all need support at some point in our lives to overcome difficulties. Counselling can provide you with the space to explore your feelings and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain leading to a more positive outlook on life.
My approach to therapy
I work primarily from a person-centred perspective, which means that I am not here to advice you or tell you what to do. In fact, the type of therapy I offer is quite the opposite. I believe that you are the expert of your life and that you have the solutions within you to deal with the challenges you face. I will provide you with a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace.
Although I am predominantly trained from a person-centred perspective, I can incorporate other forms of counselling to suit the needs of my client such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Solution focussed Therapy. My integrative style allows me to adapt in accordance with your needs. I am able to offer both short and long term counselling.
I know that taking that first step and reaching out for help can feel daunting. I will do my upmost to offer you my genuine understanding, openness, and respect. I place great importance on providing a confidential non-judgemental safe space where you feel comfortable to explore problem areas in your life. I will work alongside you on your journey to help you to find resolutions and develop coping strategies. Counselling can also help you to develop a different perspective and identify the root cause of your problems, which can lead to a happier more fulfilling life.
